"Adam, the last time you pressured me into a relationship, you ended up being the Congress-Man's evil henchman, and I had to throw you out a window. You broke my heart, Adam. You broke my heart. I won't let you pressure me again."
Adam looks a little crossed-eyed today, so his victory at the Master's is all the more impressive. (That's why he's sporting the green blazer, yes?)
If Terry keeps saying "go slow" instead of "go slowly", Some of us are going to have conniptions! (Right, Nance?)
This story is so lame...gimme identy theft any day!
@fauxprof--"Go Slow" is KM's bow to Realistic Dialogue, i.e. "Making Characters sound the way People really talk!"You know, the way she always does.I wonder if KM realizes, however, that she has boxed herself into a genuine Plot Corner here. She should, conceivably, end the storyline right here. What, really, is left to happen? Terry Bryson has provided the Resolution to the plot KM set before us. Adam Miller was searching for his lost love, found her, exposition was AMPLY given, a secondary character (Mary) implemented the necessary mechanism (meddling) for solution, and now both characters have agreed on the resolution of the conflict. BY MORE TALKING AND GOING SLOWLY. They've reunited. The end.Unless Adam Miller has to save Terry Bryson from drowning in the Charterstone Pool.
@fauxprof at 8:51 a.m.. "go slow" made me see red. Terry must have been absent from school when grammar was reviewed.Well, we know that Adam's super power is NOT wardrobe selection.I hope the disembodied hand rising from the blabber bench (good one, Wanders!) grabs the cane and beats these boring former lovers senseless.
@Nance (et al.), I predict either one of the two following scenarios:1. Terry and Adam continue to take it very slowly, and they continue to talk about taking it very slowly, for several more weeks. Then it's done, ending with some smug self-congratulatory comments from Mary to Toby. End of plot ... in a similar, unsatisfying way that the plot of the destitute single mother ended after Mary bought their dinner. Case closed.2. Or, poor single Terry with low self-esteem will experience some sort of personal tragedy or accident, and Adam will save her physically and/or emotionally. If the plot takes this twist, we can look forward to 3 or 4 months of non-stop Terry and Adam excitement!I'm leaning towards option 1, since it sounds lamer. What do YOU think?
Terry, I will never stop caring- until another charismatic Congresscritter comes along to sweep me off my feet.
Sigh! Isn't this romantic?
That's so cute how Adam is cracking Terry's knuckles for her.
Terry is guilty of redundancy, certainly, but not poor grammar, as Webster's tells me that "slow" has been used as an adverb for over 400 years, usually when it follows the verb, as in "go slow." That's no reason not to consider her a boring twit, however.
Adam is smart to keep a collabsible folding bench in his car. Always comes in handy. Maybe he should upgrade to this:http://photo.oempromo.com/Prod_793/Folding-Picnic-Table-Bench_85437955.jpg
What the heck is going on in the background? Night comes to the San Gabriels?
